are polyannas. i think we go into a recession with lots of layoffs and the fiscal cliff was designed to pr compromise. everyone knew about the growth. fewer jobs, larger deficit. as i said last night, it doesn't matter, we can pick our stocks and buy them down. ulta salons, but i want to suggest to other groups that are going to give you bang for the buck, betting that the hope will be squeezed out and the bottom gets put in before a deal is made. why not? we know the auto market is for 11 years now and we have been sweet on ford domestically. what are some of the other key areas. asia already turned. i think europe could be stablized. ford is the one to watch. i'm out blessing it. in europe i'm thinking that i'm excited about ford. we have ample evidence today that i'm right. the rates remained too low. and pricing is moving up in california, nevada, arizona all things we learned from the luxury home builder toll today. that is fine. but what i hadn't heard is a demographic play, how the demographics are going to take over. household formation is unnatural and because of the great resecti

: let's go to our next caller in massachusetts. the democrats line. caller: looking at the fiscal cliff, we go back to 2001 with the lowering of the tax rates, meant to create jobs. but in the past 10 or 11 years, we have not had any job creation whatsoever. we keep going back and hearing over and over again that it's going to cost jobs. we do not have jobs to begin with. businesses are out to make money. if consumers do not have money to spend, then you can lower their taxes to 0%. they still cannot spend because they do not have any income. guest: i think that is a great point. it brings up one thing we have not mentioned yet. the payroll tax cut is about to expire. if that expires, every paycheck in the country is going to go down about $1,000 on january 1st. that would hurt consumption. it would hurt the customers of businesses. the president has proposed to extend that. i think that is reasonable. we will see a firm public and keep up their opposition or they give in. we have a sleeper here that cannot be ignored. if we do not extend that, every paycheck in the country is going to
as we talk about this step toward the fiscal cliff, unemployment, 9.1%, millions of people would lose their jobs, the country would go back into a recession. what are the global implications, if, in fact, we do go over the fiscal cliff? >> very bad if it happens. everyone hopes it doesn't. i mean i think right now you would expect people to be flatly rejecting the other side's proposal. i mean, there's going to be -- >> 29 days? >> it's going to be a really tough negotiation. the expectation, by the way, in the world is that you will sort it out. and if you do, i think the american economy, i would be probably more optimistic about the american economy right now than certainly any part of the rest of the western world. so if you can get this sorted out, you can really move forward, and therefore, i think now that your elections are out of the way, i'm just speaking as an outsider, now your election is out of the way, there's going to be all this bargaining and positions, but my expectations, i hope, and the desire of the world, is sorted out, and we can move on, and then sort our own

by the fiscal cliff, at least 200,000 fewer jobs have been created this year. the official deadline is december 31st at midnight when the ball drops in times square. the deadline is before that, a week from friday when the house of representatives is scheduled to go on vacation. in actuality there are fewer than 11 days before they need to work out a deal. jake tapper, abc new, the white house. >> that's scary, 11 days. fellows you sit up there until it gets wrapped up. quick synopsis, gop, $800 billion in revenue through tax reform on the table. that's not what the white house wants. they want tax rates to go up as oppose to revenue going up which would include closing some loopholes. kind of one of the sticking points. >> and speaker of the house john boehner sent a nice little hallmark card, a letter to the president. i want to read you an excerpt. he set the american people rightly expect both parties to come together on a fair middle ground and address the nation's most pressing challenges. the proposal calls for $1.6 trillion in new tax revenue, twice the amount you supported during the c
of congress and president obama if they can't avoid the fiscal cliff. the petition's chances are slim. but it's a reflection of americans' frustration with 28 days left. rob and paula? >> tahman bradley live in washington today. thank you, tahman. >>> and as talks over the fiscal cliff drag on, a new poll finds that most americans do not think very highly of congress. one in ten americans rate the honesty and ethical standards of its members as very high or high. this puts the law making body, second-lowest on the list of 22 professions. higher only than car sales people. >> how telling is that? >> that's an indictment. >>> and another nasty storm is drenching the west coast, from northern california, into portland and seattle. this is the fourth big rainmaker to hit that area in a week. and this time, it could dump up to five inches of rain and cause even more flooding and destruction. abc's brandi hitt has the latest. >> reporter: after several days of drenching rain, downed trees, flooding and rockslides, families throughout the west are finally getting a break in the severe weather to cle
to avoid a fiscal cliff crisis at the end of this year. quote, speaker boehner's $800 billion tax hike will destroy american jobs. this is why republicans must oppose tax increases. but both senator demint and those four ousted congressmen, excuse me, i'm going to have to take a drink. i'm so sorry. and those ousted congressmen should reconsider their kris simples of speaker boehner because while his plan does not raise taxes on the rich, it does contain at least three evil spirits that will visit the working poor and the middle class for every christmas to come. first, speaker boehner says nothing about extending the payroll tax cut and that would mean at least $1,000 less in the pockets of workers next year. he wants to raise the eligibility age for medicare benefits up to 67, and this would obviously affect manual workers whose bodies are already weary by the time they reach 65. and speaker boehner wants to cut $300 billion from discretionary spending, which includes social
and will also lead to incremental job creation. >> negotiations continue on the fiscal cliff. obama appeared yesterday to raise prospect that some sort of modification on the deduction for interest payments could be put on the table. there are many people within the housing industry that go screaming around like headless chickens at the prospect of that. do you think it would have a huge impact if it came through? >> the biggest single risk that could derail the housing recovery. we're in the second or third innings out of nine. anything that flexes downward deductibility of interest expense for home mortgages is potentially catastrophic threat to the recovery. >> really? do you think that in the toll brothers space that whether or not people get a check for $10,000 is going to affect whether they purchase a house? >> what we're really talking about here, simon, is the incremental buyer on the margin. it's a question of do we have buyers? yes. are the number of buyers increasing? something which takes $10,000 out of your pocket will make you less likely to buy a house. it will have a negativ

-800-743-cnbc. maybe it just doesn't matter, maybe the stock market stays buoyant because the fiscal cliff buoyant because the fiscal cliff buoyant because the fiscal cliff buoyant because the fiscal cliff buoyant because the fiscal cliff buoyant because the fiscal cliff buoyant because the fiscal cliff is not that big of an issue. maybe that's why the averages once again refuse to drop dramatically, the dow falling 60 points. despite the obvious impasse i saw firsthand when i appeared on "meet the press" with david gregory this weekend, i know i've been interpreting the market's relative success through a difficult period. success is defined by no huge hammering like we had during the debt ceiling crisis as a sign that either perhaps people didn't understand what awaits them -- no no! or that there might be a deal on the horizon to avoid the fiscal cliff, the fact that the republicans put out an offer, like their old offer before the president won re-election, it does feel like the two sides are talking, but they appear to be talking past each other. the clock is really ticking in washing

discussing the fiscal cliff. i think the shared concerns of governors that we address are fiscal challenges in a way that ensures the economy continues to grow and create jobs. with that, i'll take your questions. >> thanks, jay. two questions. in the bloomberg interview, the president was asked whether tax rates on the wealthiest americans have to go to the clean ton levels, 39.6% now. is that a red line? he never answered it directly, a process where rates could go down next year as far as tax reform. you talked with fiscal rates need to go up. what he campaigned on was the 39.6 at the end of the year. is that the case? >> so, let me say this, the president has been absolutely clear, as have i, that rates have to go up on top earners, on millionaires and billionaires, those making over $250,000. the president made that clear all yearlong and clear in the post-election period being engaged in conversations with congress about how to deal with the fiscal cliff, and our long term deficit challenges. we have yet to see even an acknowledgement of republican leaders of the fact that there is no

, explaining, but also inspiring. >> reporter: wolf, when it comes to a deal on averting the fiscal cliff, negotiations are on deep freeze. from the white house's perspective, they're not going to budge until house republicans come around to the view that tax rates on the wealthiest have to go up. but you know house republicans don't want to agree to any kind of deal that includes that. so right now it's a blinking contest. of course, the white house thinks it's one they'll ultimately win, because in the new year tax rates automatically go up. >> and there could be a recession once again if we go into that fiscal cliff. how worried are officials over at the white house that the president will get a lot of blame for not showing enough leadership in forces a deal through by the end of the year? >> reporter: they take it seriously but they're not worried about the politics of it. they're confident that republicans will take the blame. you and i might not be so certain that it will only go to congress and americans will only be angry at congress. here inside the white house, they are quite co
